Dr Simon De-Ville PhD, MEng
Simon joined Loughborough University in July of 2017 having completed his PhD at The University of Sheffield the month before, where he also completed his undergraduate Masters degree.
PhD, 2017: The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. Department of Civil and Structural Engineering. Thesis entitled: ‘Hydrological Performance Evolution of Extensive Green Roof Systems.’
MEng, 2013: The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. Department of Civil and Structural Engineering. Civil Engineering MEng (Hons).
Outline of main research interests:
Simon’s current research interests focus on understanding the influence of soil properties on flooding. This research builds upon his PhD work exploring the long term performance of green infrastructure as a means of stormwater control. More broadly Simon is interested in:
- Soil Science
- Non-Invasive Investigation Techniques
- Green Infrastructure
